The NWA issued a statement today announcing that — due to the coronavirus pandemic — they’re “suspending normal operations until June as far as any live performances.”
That includes the Crockett Cup pay-per-view and the two days of post-PPV television tapings that were scheduled.
The Crockett Cup was set to take place at the Gateway Center Arena in College Park, Georgia on Sunday, April 19, with the tapings scheduled for GPB Studios in Atlanta on Monday, April 20 and Tuesday, April 21.
NWA Worlds Heavyweight Champion Nick Aldis defending his title against Marty Scurll had been announced for the Crockett Cup.
The Rock ‘n’ Roll Express, Rey Horus & Flamita, Brody King & Flip Gordon, and Thomas Latimer & Royce Isaacs were the first four teams revealed for the Crockett Cup tournament, and Trevor Murdoch was set to challenge for Aron Stevens’ NWA National title.
Those who have purchased tickets to the Crockett Cup will be refunded, while those who bought tickets for the TV tapings can either be refunded or keep their tickets for a future NWA event at GPB Studios. Those who want to keep their tickets for a future event are asked to email Maureen@nationalwrestlingalliance.com within five days.
The NWA Super Power episode that was going to air this Tuesday won’t air in its current form “in order to not create confusion in the marketplace,” but the NWA wrote that they will continue to produce content in the interim.
The full statement from the NWA is available below:
The National Wrestling Alliance, given the uncertain course of this world health crisis, is suspending normal operations until June as far as any live performances.

The health and safety of our wrestlers, in-house and NWA staff, and fans are of the utmost importance during the global pandemic of COVID-19. We look forward to seeing you all soon.
